Learning Lab applications due September 4

Archival processing in the Special Collections Research Center.
Students engaged in the UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center Learning Lab Internships for 2015-2016 will work to highlight Lexington architectural history as they process the Frankel and Curtis blueprints and papers. Students will work together on a multi-format project layering GIS technology, city government data, and archival photos using digital humanities tools. This project will also include analysis of a National Register of Historic Places application.

This is an ideal project for students from many academic departments including computer science, architecture, engineering, historic preservation, geography, sociology, anthropology, fine arts, or history. Find more information on the project and instructions for how to apply for Learning Lab Internships online.  

The SCRC Learning Lab is a center of primary research, experiential learning, and training targeted to UK undergraduates in various disciplines who want to enhance their studies through training in archival methods and theory. Applications for fall and spring internships are due Friday, Sept. 4.
